Jamaica Scream - See It In My Eyes
Australian indie rock act Jamaica Scream has just dropped their single See It In My Eyes, the follow-up to Mad For You a track which received some healthy attention at commercial radio and on streaming sites.
This Perth based band, incorporating a relevant social commentary to an expansive indie rock-pop sound. No less powerful, See It In My Eyes sees the band deliver something a little different, straight out guitar-driven track that explores a personal relationship but with similar sociological allusions.
Vocalist Dom Muscadere is in fine form once again, his skills enabling him to go from low registers to high effortlessly and with conviction. Another elemental change about this new track is the inclusion of some sax parts.
These lines weave around the guitar and offer a stylistic modification that exposes a retro flavour without succumbing to it entirely. The sound is still contemporary, offering another organic texture that varies the overall sound of the band. See It In My Eyes can be viewed as a meditation on intimacy, and about the truth or not that exists around that relationship.
‘It’s about how easy it is to fall into the trap of over-analysing everything (including our love) in this politically correct world where really all we need to do is to stare into your lover’s eyes to see just how much love they have for you’.
As Dom says about the lyric, ‘It’s about how easy it is to fall into the trap of over-analysing everything (including our love) in this politically correct world where really all we need to do is to stare into your lover’s eyes to see just how much love they have for you’.
In one sense See It My Eyes is a straight forward love song, using the energy of a rock band, utilizing some memorable melodies and an engaging vocal performance to get a more complex message across.
The success of Mad For You exposed Jamaica Scream to a wider audience and no doubt considering the universal appeal of See It In My Eyes, that audience will expand even further.
